CELADUSSAE a group of islands off the coast of Liburnia in Illyricum (Plin. Nat. 3.26. s. 30), per. haps the same as the Dyscelados of Mela (2.7). Some writers, however, suppose that there were no islands or island of this name that the name Celadussae in Pliny is a corruption of Dyscelados in Mela; and that the latter is invented from an epithet of Issa in a line of Apollonins (Ἰσσά τε δυσκέλαδός τε καὶ ἱμερτὴ Ριτύεια, Apollon. 4.565).
